NCIS: Los Angeles > NCIS: Los Angeles Season Finale Review: Checkmate > Comments Page 2
* a contract for the next season.
Another strange thing i would like to add is that the terrorists just give that guy to Kensi and Deeks before having the Chameleon in their possession, now the team could have just driven away with both of them?! This could suggest that they where in on it too and this was all staged for something which we will find out next season!! So excited!!!!!!
My conclusion is that this was a set up which was so secret that they couldn't tell any one, not even Hetty. Or that they improvised on the spot. Callen had to pretend to kill the Chameleon so that they didn't have to give him to the terrorists and it had to be on tv so that everyone would think that the Chameleon is dead.
Another strange thing was that the cops didn't shoot at Callen when he shot the Chameleon which suggests that they where in on it because they should have because they always do.
Another explanation would be that Callen was hired by someone for example Director Vance to set this up so that everyone thinks the Chameleon is dead (including the team) and that Callen is in Jail. It is very strange that Director Vance never shows up in the last couple of episodes.
They always have these cliff hangers at the end of each season and it always turns out fine. Callen and Hetti are the two main characters so they won't leave the show, beside they both signed a contrac
Certain characters have to remain for a show to be successful and keep that going. Imagine NCIS without Gibbs for starters... would not work. The same can be said for Callen and Hetty in NCIS LA. There is great acting chemistry between those two and they are the heart of the show. But if you take the final episode as literal (ie it all actually happened), do not see how Callen can be retrieved from that mess (even with an order from the President!), he killed an unarmed men and, 'man' did he pump those bullets in !!!! No forgiveness there, especially that last shot - was that meant to be through the Chameleon's jaw as he did to his victims? Hetty would have to call in every favour she had and then some to clear Callen of first degree murder on that one! That said.. of course it could all turn out to be a dream ... (the Ewings got away with it after all...!!!), maybe thats the best to hope for if we want to keep our favourite characters in the show!!!
I agree with rico43, well... for the most part. I didn't see any blood when Chameleon was shot and Kenzie's face didn't look all that surprised. But I'm surprised that those Two police officers didn't shoot Callen, if it wasn't a show, he would have been shot like 30 times the second he pulled the first shot on Chameleon. BTW those cops and camera crew was the work of Chameleon, he set it up so Callen can't kill him.
It didn't really happen. Only in his mind. It was all imagined in a few seconds. Even Hetty quitting. Remember she told him about the first time she quit. Crossing the date out on an official document is not reality. I believe he snaps out of it at the last second.
If Hetty was in on this, I really don't understand the morgue scene. As for the rest, I agree the shooting wasn't real. Could Hunter's death have been unanticipated and real and that's why Hetty walks out? I think I read somewhere that Linda Hunt would like to retire. Thoughts, anyone?
And so no one in the whole world can furnish the title or artist of the very last song (when Callen shot the Chameleon as he got out of the truck)? It was an acoustic ballad and had the words....waiting for the Pheonix to be rising off the roof and also the lyrics.."your next move, what's it gonna be?" Does anyone know this song or artist??? HELP!!! and thanks
keep replaying the last 4 minutes"
I think im gonna cry just watched the last 4 minutes to comprehend what just happened...
Minus Hetty and Callen, this is a no-go-show. The idea that it was all staged is viable except for blowing up Lauren. Kind of hard to "fake" that unless they were using "projection" to APPEAR to place her in the car. If Granger is Chameleon, HURRAH! Get rid of him one way or another. Hetty doing the resignation thing again was for the benefit of ????? Unless the writers are giving even MORE "power" to Granger and Hetty doesn't know it was a setup. If that is the direction, kiss this program goodbye--Ferrar cannot, in his wildest dreams, carry this show as effectively as Hetty.
How can I find out what the music credits are? I am very interested in knowing what the song near the end of this episode was. Not the very last song, the one just before that.
who played the cameleon in final episode, Christopher Lambert?
What was the song playing at the end of the season finale? I dvr'd it and didn't get the credits.
Of course Hetty and Callen will be back with NCIS, the show would be awful without them. The scene had to be staged, the question is what will they show come the season opener. Callen won't be doing any undercover work even though it was staged, his face will be all over the news. So it will be interesting to see what they have in store. I rather liked the whole episode, and felt it was a good cliff hanger. Can't wait until next season.
After reviewing the final scene, I'm with everyone else. It has to be a setup. There's absolutely no way that Callen would just lose it like that and shoot him in front of the world like that. It was planned; Callen got what he wanted, but it was legit. The cameras, the police, very convenient if you ask me. Everyone was in on it except for Granger, who probably wanted to keep Callen a tight leash and is more than likely the leak. Now it's all about exposing the leak and revealing the true mastermind behind it all. I also believe that the main bad guy is not dead. No blood coming out of his chest at all, not even in the face either. It was made to look like he was killed. Callen made a move, all right, but it was a move that his enemy didn't expect. The shooting was staged.
And the first half was only suspenseful because you were waiting for one of them to die.
Its all a set up!! Remember Granger and Hetty's conversation about a compromised agent? She asked him if it was one of hers. He did not respond but gave her a look. Season 3 opens with a mole hunt!!
After the initial shock of "G. did WHAT?!?!?" wore off, something struck me: where was the blood. None of the police shows have trouble showing blood these days. In fact, they will show the growing pool when someone is shot in the scene. So, for a person that got hit 5ish times, where was the blood? My guess is that Mr. Chameleon was wearing a bullet-proof vest or Callen's gun had rubber bullets (or tranquilizers) in it. The Chameleon is now "dead" and Callen "locked up" So, no one in Tehran will be expecting him to free the compromised spy. The Hetty resigning thing is getting old. Other than that, it was a good finale. The second hour was definately better than the first.
My guess is that the entire shooting scene was a set up with everyone in the know (including Hetti) in order to find someone on the inside who was working with the Chameleon. That someone is Granger and this will smoke him out. I just can't figure out how they got the Chameleon to be quiet or cooperate.
I love Hetty and Callan. Leave them alone please!
OMG!!!!! What is going to happen to Callen? I don't want him arrested and I don't want Hetti to resign.
It'll be a really loooong summer for us.
When is the next season? o.0
I was completely in shock at the end of this episode, not to mention in tears. Hetty cant leave, it wouldn't be the same without her. And I really hope this Callen thing is different then what they portrayed. The show will fall apart without him.
I'm with Ashley and Rico43... I didn't see any blood on the Chameleon, and Callen shot him multiple times, including the mouth. Shoulda been lots of blood. I think there is a set up going on.
Oh man, I'm still sad about Renko and Hunter ... especially Hunter. I think she was an interesting character and could be more explored ... as well as her relation with Hetty. Poor Hetty, it was really sad to see her in the morgue :( ...
